To tlie careful observer, who has
been watching The Dispatch Prize
Contest increase in magnitude from
day to day, the list shows many sur
prising changes. In the first place it
shows that the entire public, not only
in Wilmington, but in all the sur
rounding territory is interested in
someone in this great -contest. II
shows that friends of . the different
candidates are working just as earn
estly for the success of their friends
in the race as the candidates them
selves. Tuere are a great many instances
where the candidates themselves
have secured but few, if any, sub
Ecriptions or votes. Their totals rep
resent the efforts of those admiring
friends. Of course, so far these
friends, hwe been working steadily
'n ho hope that the candidate her
"ielJ, would, after a while, take , an
interest in her own campaign, and
help them make her a a winner, of
the Briscoe Automobile, or one of .the
other valuable prizes. "
As the contest increases from day
i to day these friends will, no doubt
become discouraged, disguested, or
both, and swing their support to the
more active candidates. If you are
one of those who so far, have done
nothing much .toward your own cam-
! paign.. and want the support of your
i friends, you had better begin soon to
! show more interest in your campaign.
S i The contest does not close until four
j weeks from next Monday night, and
you have time to get busy, work and
win, but no time to idle away.
Another thing that impresses one
upon the close study of- the list is the
fact, that, as a rule, the candidates
who work steadily from day to day,
doing a little work each day, are the
candidates who are forging ahead.
They appreciate the value of v'steady

Some Guns So Important
As to Need Entire
(By Associated Press.)
. American Training Camp In
France, Wednesday, Oct. 10. Not far
behind the American field artillery
which has been in training in a rug-
" ged section of France for the past
two months, have come the men of
the "heavies". They are veteran
gunners and many are familiar with
the big guns at home, and they greet
ed almost as comrades the monster
French weapons which they are now
grooming for eventual use against the
Some of the guns with which Ihe
American artillerymen are training
are wonderful and ponderous ex
amples of the French gun makers'
skill and daring. They range from
the modest but nrarvelously effective
"155" up to the daggering "400" that
hurls a high oxnicsive missile weigh
ing just short of a ton.
The 400s are more potent than the
big Berthas ever were" in their days
of great destructiveness .
In calibre, the;, gtms range . frpm the I
their haumchs rfrke iglarif ittigs'Mp
through the various members of the
Howitzer family to the truly sinister
naval rifle:, with their long tapering
barrels. The Americans are delight
ed with their French weapons and
are busr studying every detail and
adapting themselves to the use of
French material. Most of the 'heavy
gunners are men of long experience
and do not need much actual firing
practice before taking their place in
lin,e against the enemy. They have
been a little surprised to find that
with the big land guns used here,
speed is not a great . factor. These
heavy weapons "are used for destruct
ive purposes and there is no special
need for haste when dealing with
concrete dug outs and other enemy
i defenses that cannot run away.
Accuracy is the great goal of all
Asked if his men would not find
it difficult to shoot without direct
observation, the general commanding
the heavy artillery contingent re
plied : '
"We will have direct observation
here. The only difference will b
that the observer, instead"" of standing
beside his gun, will be sitting aloft

it that each shot we fire at the enemy
will be watched and recorded."
